The Awty School was founded in 1956 as a pre-school. The incorporation of an Upper School in 1975 changed the school into a college preparatory school which merged with the French School of Houston and became the Awty International School in 1984.

Enrollment has increased from 400 to 1,100 over the last ten years. A new pre-school facility was completed in 1990, a new upper school science building in 1991, additional pre-school classrooms in 1995, and a new upper school building including a computer center, foreign language laboratories and a new library in 1996. Construction was completed on a new performing arts and athletic center. A new classroom wing opened in Fall 1999 and a new Lower School building opened in 2003.
